The Border Collie, who is now four years old, was neglected as a child.Kong, the adolescent dog, was found at a shelter in Claremore, Oklahoma.He was suffering from a terrible skin condition and sunburn that was so severe that he couldn’t be handled.
Border Collie Rescue and Rehab in Prosper, Texas, welcomed and rehabilitated Kong.On the Rescue website, he was known as # 387.
Curtis Hartsell, on the other hand, didn’t need a name to be smitten by the small white puppy. With a wide smile and inquisitive eyes.”I checked out her profile and immediately fell in love with her distinctive photo and the explanation they put on the page,”.According to Hartsell,
“Her adoptive mother explained her behavior and temper.I told her about my past, and she thought we were a good match.”After multiple interviews and a house visit, Hartsell’s application was approved, and the two eventually met for the first time.
Hartsell came at ZIB’s foster home. and a friend captured a photo of the moment the lost dog was finally recovered.
“He has truly saved me,” he said, “and there is nothing I would not do for him.””Our lives have now become centered on one another, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
